Great for any occasion and absolutely delicious served with noodles (or mashed potatoes). Substitute white bread for wheat bread if you're looking for a healthier meal. For the fresh bread crumbs use 6 to 8 slices bread crumbled into tiny pieces.
1 carrot, grated
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup diced fresh parsley
1kg beef mince
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
1 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar

Directions Preparation:15min › Cook:45min › Extra time:1hour › Ready in:2hours
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
In a medium saucepan over medium high heat saute the carrot and onion for 2 minutes or until onion is transparent. Add garlic and saute for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a large bowl combine the parsley, beef, tomato sauce, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, bread and eggs; mixing well. Add the carrot/onion mixture and continue mixing but do not over mix as this will make the meatloaf dry. Transfer mixture to a 20 x 30cm baking tray and form into a loaf.
Bake at 190 degrees C for 30 to 45 minutes.
While loaf is baking heat the remaining tomato sauce and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Pour over loaf when done.
